Technology & Telehealth
At the forefront of using technology to transform public health practice, the Public Health Institute builds the evidence base for applying digital innovations to public health, and shows the value of using innovative technology to improve health—from enabling independent living for the aging, to allowing patients to connect remotely with health care providers. PHI works to deploy new technologies in diverse health and health care settings in order to improve the quality of care and expand access to the underserved, while supporting the adoption of proven technologies by disseminating evaluation results and working with partners to address policy and financing barriers to implementation. PHI is committed to advancing health equity by examining the role of technology in improving the health of vulnerable and underserved populations and connecting them to care.
